Make a Tour Reservation

Because Lotusland is a public garden operating in a private, residential neighborhood, advance tour reservations are required to visit – call 805.969.9990 Monday though Friday between 9:00 AM and 4:30 PM.

Tour Schedule


Visitors tour the gardens in groups of approximately 10, led by knowledgeable docents.

Self-guided tours are at 9:15, 9:30 and 9:45 for morning visits and 1:15, 1:30 and 1:45 for afternoon visits. Reservation times are available Wednesday through Saturday from mid-February through mid-November.

Admission


Adults: $50; ages 3 to 17, $25; 2 and under, free. Admission fees are non-refundable.

What’s on the tour?


A series of gardens, with subtropical and tropical plants from around the world, draws the visitor from surprise to surprise on the two-hour self-guided walking tour. There will be time to visit the Garden Shop Patio at the end of the tour or shop online at LotuslandShop.org.

Is Membership a better option?


Lotusland Members visit free all year long and have the privilege of exploring the garden on their own or choosing a docent led tour. Members still need to make a reservation. The many benefits of Membership can be found here or call 805.969.3767 ext. 115 or 120.

Bringing children?


Regular tours are appropriate for children ages 10 and over.

Need special assistance?


Please inform a Visitor Services staff member of any special needs when you make your reservation.

Need directions?


Directions and parking instructions are included with the tour confirmation. Do not use MapQuest or similar programs. They will direct you to the wrong gate. (Lotusland’s Visitor Entrance is on a different street from its administrative offices.)
